Scope

All faculty and staff

Policy

It is the policy of Albion College to provide a safe, non-threatening, and healthy working environment for all employees, students, and visitors. In an effort to respond to concerns of health (especially allergies), fear, and safety, the presence of animals in the workplace poses a safety concern as well as a risk of potential liability for the College. Therefore, animals are not permitted in any building or College vehicle. The only exception to this policy applies to service animals (e.g., seeing eye dogs) and the use of animals as part of the curriculum. This applies to all campus buildings and all College vehicles at all times. Animals are further prohibited from access to athletics fields and must be leashed at all times when on College property.
